Rusted cogs

I love these cogs or gear dies by memory box and was fascinated by the tutorial by Dave on outside the box blog but also disappointed as I don't use copics and the refills are a little expensive just to experiment. 
I don't have alcohol inks in similar colours either so I had to improvise with my promarkers.

I used sadle brown,raw sienna, verdigis and grey green and a graphit marker turquoise for anyone interested. I simply scribbled randomly on the cogs.

 I got the shine on the cogs by adding sakura clear gel pen over the surface.

For the sentiment I used decor celebrate from poppystamps . I again randomly scribbled the promarkers onto white card big enough for the die and once cut again topped with sakura clear gel pen.

I experimented with the layout on both a kraft and a white base card and couldn't decide so I asked hubby which he preferred , well he is a man. I went with just randomly placed individual cogs rather than  connected and I think it works quite well.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Crafty creations -sentiment as the main focus

Little Miss Muffet - anything goes

crafty friends - anything goes

Simply papercrafts - anything goes
